    Zack Greinke breaks rib playing basketball...

    PHOENIX -- Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Zack Greinke is likely to begin the season on the disabled list because of a fractured right rib.

    Greinke injured himself while playing basketball in the offseason. Initial X-rays were negative, but an MRI exam Monday revealed a hairline fracture in one rib and a bruise in a second.

    Greinke is a former AL Cy Young winner. The Brewers acquired him in an offseason trade with Kansas City.

    Someone needs to tell Jonny Gomes to stifle himself this time.

    This is the saddest day. We should respectfully mourn every day that Grienke is not active, less we be accomplices to this tragedy.

    article I read says he was told not to play basketball during spring training and ignored it.

    A speedy recovery to both him and Wainwright. I want to see the Reds keep the crown by beating the best of the NL Central, not what's left of them.

    Article says the offseason. I would take that to mean prior to spring training, right?

    What other sports does Carlos Silva play in his off time?

    Greinke has a couple red flags on him, first being told not to play bball and playing anyways. Also he is getting blasted in the media because he wont go out to dinner and stuff with the rest of his teammates...doesnt seem like a big deal but once the media starts talking about it it doesnt matter.

    So STL is on the verge of imploding and they might have chemistry issues in Milwaukee? Yes yes, probably wishful thinking on my part, but I'm just glad none of this stuff is coming out of our organization.

    Good times.

    Lets not forget the Cubs are having fight nights already lol. Who's gonna be our competition when the others are completely shattered? The Pirates are the only team not in the news yet.

    Its part of the game, they had/have no problem winning against us when anyone is injured. Beating them with or without players is the name of the game, take care of yours, dont worry about the rest is all that matters. This whole "beat the best" arguement is worn out.
